We have three words for you: Make. Them. Crispy.: This In-N-Out Menu Trick Is Game-Changing © Provided by Hearst Communications, Inc This In-N-Out Menu Trick Is Game-Changing

West Coasters will tell you immediately upon meeting them that their precious In-N-Out Burger is beyond compare to whatever fast food chain you have. And I mean, they have a point: The vibe inside is so cute, animal-style is truly a life-changing adventure, and you can eat it almost immediately on the beach. But their one weakness? Slumpy fries. While other chains have a nice, crunchy texture, In-N-Out fries basically are as tasty as the napkins you'll wipe the ketchup off your mouth with.

HumpDay Treat... I promise the diet starts tomorrow. 🤷♂️

THAT IS, until my life was completely changed. The last time I went, someone behind me in line, who I will refer to from this moment on as my Personal Fry Savior (my fry-ar, even) whispered something into my ears: "You should ask for them to make your fries crispy." This confused me for many reasons: first, I'm a New Yorker, so why is a random person talking to me to say anything besides cursing me off for jay-walking? And second, AREN'T FRIES ALWAYS CRISPY? Apparently not.

So, I listened to my PFS (Personal Fry Savior, of course) and went up to the counter and asked for a Diet Coke and a large order of fries - crispy. The cashier said nothing in response but just typed in the order, and I saw “crispy” come up as an option! IT'S BEEN HIDING IN THE COMPUTER THE ENTIRE TIME.

When I went to sit down with my friends, I carried on like nothing has happened - although I was waiting slowly to see if my life will change forever. Slowly, each person's order was coming out, and I could see, one by one, that others’ fries were ... subpar. But then, like a true magical mirage - my fries appeared, and they were crispy and delectable. Like a sore winner, I laughed at all my friends. But, like a good person, I shared with everyone. See? Their crispiness already made me a better person.

You're welcome for rocking your world, and remember - next time you're there, go crispy. Your life will be changed for good.
